From this article I can understand that due to poor sanitization many people cannot attend school. I guess this is because they are too ill to attend school and if they do the disease would spread and it would slowly become an epidemic. The poor also do not have enough money to buy medicines of get medical help. It is mainly the girls who are affected because there is not many medical benifits there.Hence we as students should try our best to provide some help for the poor like books and writing materials.

I always knew that poverty had connections with not having an education and I find it very sad that children in congo stops going to school once they reach puberty because of the poor sanitation. Education is very important, and everyone should have a chance to get an education.  This article changes my attitude towards education, that anyone who has a chance to be able to get an education should take it and treasure it. After reading this article, I wonder if anyone has tried to do something about their poor sanitation.

This is my insight using C-E-C thinking routines. Firstly, i knew that lack of hygenic food would cause problems for students. I also knew that females are mistreated in some countries. What i did not expect was when the article reported that diarrhoea is the biggest child killer in Africa. Before i read the article, i had never thought that lack of food hygiene can be the deadliest killer. This led me to wonder whether the government knew of this problem and how they are going to solve them.
